Welcome to Collective Foole!

"Resistance is foolish.  Your biological distinctiveness and trivia knowledge will be added to our own."

Welcome to Collective Foole's Trivia Team website.  We're a team that participates in the "World's Largest Trivia Contest" held each April in Stevens Point, WI.

Mission Statement:

To use creativity, technology, experience, hard work and determination to WIN the World's Largest Trivia Contest. 

Why do we call ourselves Collective Foole?  Well, we think the Borg from Star Trek are pretty darn cool.  They assimilate knowledge just like us.  They use it for dominating the galaxy, we're happy just to conquer trivia contests.  But seriously though, here's how we define a collective:

A collective is a group of people who share or are motivated by at least one common issue or interest, or work together on a specific project(s) to achieve a common objective.

We also like to have fun, and that's where the Foole part comes in.  A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (uh oh, a Star Wars reference!) there was really cool, funny comedy album put out by a man named George Carlin.  A bunch of the people on our team thought it was pretty funny and decided to use it in a trivia team name.  And as they say, the rest is history... 

We're super excited and already getting ready for Trivia 42 (April 8th-10th, 2011), it starts in exactly

Our team name for the upcoming 2011 contest will be:

Collective Foole

Feel free to look around, and make sure you come back as these pages will be updated very often.
